I love how when it shoots up to 50* here (or close to it) people are walking around with no coats on, in shorts like it's the middle of July. I guess that's what it feels like when it has been in the teens, all the way down to -30 for the past few months. I was inspired by the warmth and the people super excited for Spring to FINALLY be here, so I'm focusing on a trend that seems to make its way back every Spring, pastels....more
I'm not a dress person. At least I wasn't but now I can't believe that I've waited this long to like them. It's actually not too surprising because I'm always late when it comes to fashion. Not that dresses is a new trend or anything considering that women have been wearing them since the beginning of time. I'm a casual girl and dresses have always felt too dressy. I like to be comfortable and I think there is a part of me that wants to blend into the wall a little bit. To me, a woman in a dress stands out....more

And, because she also has beautiful hands, she is my model for today's post. I hope you enjoy it....more

I love headbands and other hair accessories. I want to say it’s because of how cute and pretty they are and the wide range of choices now. However, it’s only really because hair accessories are fantastic at masking the fact that you may not be at your freshest.We all have these days (maybe some more than others). You wake up late, you realize you didn’t do laundry last night, and you have to be out the door in 20 minutes. Even if you can squeeze in time for a shower, we both know your hair is probably not going to be washed and it is definitely not going to be styled.This is when I turn to a hair accessory. To help make your lazy life easier, I’ve put together shopping guides of hair accessories for every occasion. Now, thanks to me, you can be glamorous and greasy! You’re welcome....more
